Particular Assistant to Chief Minister on Data Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Saturday offered some laughs amid a tense scenario with outcomes of by-elections withheld by the Election Fee of Pakistan.
Talking to the media concerning the Election Fee’s determination to withhold the outcomes of the NA-75 Sialkot-IV constituency, as a consequence of suspected swapping of votes, Awan mentioned that the federal government is trying to the ECP to launch the outcomes quickly.
“We wish to see the supremacy of the law and the Constitution upheld. The Election Commission, that has the role of a regulator, while taking notice of the matter, must direct the relevant returning officer to announce the result of this constituency immediately,” she mentioned.
Firdous then went on to say: “So that the Peoples Party’s victory can earnestly be celebrated.”
The ECP has, in an official assertion, mentioned it suspects rigging within the by-elections for the NA-75 constituency in Sialkot.

The PML-N has, in the meantime, demanded a re-election in the complete constituency within the face of what it phrases is “irrefutable evidence” and the “charge sheet against the government” issued by the ECP.
